Dr. Morales has provided my daughter with exceptional care and compassion. Dr. Morales has been thorough in evaluating and diagnosing my daughter's condition and has explained it to my teenage daughter in a positive way that helps my daughter understand what is going on and what my daughter can do about it. Dr. Morales has promptly called me back each time I have asked for a return call. Super smart, funny, and very caring. Best doctor I have ever met. Thank you God for Dr. Morales.
